NanoProtect photo-catalytic solutions for Indoor and Outdoor applications actively decompose bacteria, biological and chemical pollutants & toxins, bad odours, mould and other fungi.
When the photo-catalyst, TiO2, captures ultraviolet light it forms activated oxygen from water or oxygen in the air. Because of its catalytic nature photo-catalyst properties are not consumed during this chemical reaction. The treated surface regenerates its photo-catalytic effect by reacting with oxygen in the air. This process is similar to photosynthesis that plants use, in which the chlorophyll captures sunlight to turn water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and glucose.
Our photo-catalytic products break down any organic compound and other harmful substances back into its original chemical form of carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) creating a cleaner and safer indoor environment.
The powerful self cleaning effect of our products is based on a 0.2 to 0.5 micron thin film of titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is a photo-catalyst material applied on the treated surface.
Within 1-2 hours this thin film chemically bonds to the surface and starts to absorb ultraviolet ray in the sunlight or artificial light to react with water vapour to form a strong oxidizing agent known as the hydroxyl radical.
By adding self-cleaning properties for building windows cleaning cycles can be significantly reduced and extended.
TiO2 photo-catalytic agent
TiO2 is the chemical formula for Titanium dioxide and is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium. Titanium dioxide is a safe substance, which is harmless to humans. It has been approved by the food-testing laboratory of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
It is commonly used in a wide range of health care products and cosmetics. TiO2 can be found in a diverse range of products such as tooth pastes, sun creams, paints, printing ink, plastics, paper, painting colours and crayons, ceramics, electronic components along with food and cosmetics. TiO2 based products are environmentally friendly.
